ikki5 commented on Full Extent of Nintendo of Europe Job Cuts Bec...:

As I have said on other news sites about this,:

"temporary workers"

meaning, they were not permanent staff to begin with and they knew and went into the job knowing that their jobs would not last long term. So really, these "cuts" were going to happen sooner or later just by the nature of the contract signed. I don't know why it is such a shock that 190 people who only had temporary positions got laid off.

@MrMario02 is splatoon dated to be released this year? No

The list I did for the 3DS was games released this year while your list was tech demos, unconfirmed games a game over a year away. Only one was for this year. The only reason why i mentioned MH4 Ultimate was because MH4 is being released before the end of the year and it is the same game with a few extra features.

@MrMario02

Zelda Wii U - Over a year from now
Starfox Wii U Still have yet to see gameplay or anything noteworthy
Bayonetta 2 decent, hard to say how this will do and probably not a killer game
Project Giant robot lol, don't make me laugh, it is in very beta and looks like Tank! Tank! Tank! and is a tech demo
Project Guard looks like a minigame that should have been in Nintendo land and again, tech demo
Arcade Pokken Fighters Championship not even confirmed for Wii U or even hinted at being on the Wii U, only assumed
Kirby and the rainbow curse a drawing game for kirby

so... again, what were you saying? The only one on that list that I can possibly agree on would be Bayonetta, the rest are way too far away to even consider here or just...lol. How about I put together a list of great anticipated 3DS games all for this year?

Pokemon
Smash
Harvest moon
Story of Seasons
Professor layton
Lego Batman
Fantasy Life
MH4 and then MH4 ultimate coming early first quarter of next year.

provided none are delayed, here you go. Where as the Wii U has Bayonetta, Hyrule, Smash and Toad (provided this doesn't get delayed as it was delayed in Europe), Lego for it's anticipated games

@WaLzgi and that is more than the Wii U? All that the Wii U has been getting was Smash and Hyrule Warriors. really, the 3DS has 2 killer games that are coming to it that will see no matter if you don't say anything or not where the Wii U for that kind of game, you got Smash.... and that's about it. So really, neither then has that much so really, they should be doing them on both systems and I'd say more leaned on the Wii U as it doesn't have that push that the 3DS has.

ikki5 commented on New Legend Of Zelda "Only Possible" Thanks To ...:

Well, I'd hope so. Just imagine if he went out and said "Oh yeah, our next Zelda game could run on the Wii or gamecube (same thing hardware wise) or the N64.... no one would look at their New Zelda game as a next Gen Zelda game.

@Pod
"And I am annoyned that this is added without asking me, and that deleting it will delete general upgrades to my game."

So in other words, if this was in the game when it was first released, you would not have cared....

@rjejr yeah, I know Brawl was postponed until march but at the same time, I do not believe that Brawl was playable on the showcase floor at E3 2007. It was just a trailer, the game demo didn't come until later in the fall I thought and if i remember correctly, it seemed very barebones especially compared to what Smash Bros. 4 was on the floor at E3 this year. So the game seemed to be at different stages of development where as E3 of this year, the game was very playable, even for them to host the first major tournament where as with Brawl, they just had a few gameplay videos.

@Pod Well, the answer is simple then. Don't buy them. Either wait or don't buy them at all. I am also surprised that you are bringing up quality in this when you have already seen the quality in the game and I am pretty sure you can make a pretty safe assumption that it will be the same quality. You can use the other Nintendo DLC from others games to justify it because those DLC quality was the same as the games they were for. I am even more surprised that you'd do Kickstarter but not this as Kickstarter has the chance of going belly up and your money is gone where this is a definite thing which leads me to believe that you are only complaining for the sake of complaining.

@rjejr Well, I am sure if something so catastrophic happened that completely destroyed your Wii U, then I am pretty sure the Wii u would be the last of your concerns. Yes we all know that the NNID system is dumb and needs to be fixed but getting mad that they are offering pre-orders for DLC that is months away because a meteor could trike your house is a stupid way of thinking. 99% of people who buy this, will be able to download it and use it. The rest will either be dead, by which then they won't care and the Wii u should then be the last thing on their minds, or did something incredibly stupid and didn't take care of their stuff which by then, I have no sympathy or they should be worrying about other stuff because their home has been destroyed. Plus usually house insurance will cover that kind of stuff which then you can just re-buy everything again anyway and the only loss will be not having your NNID and will need to then create a new one.

@Pod
In a lot of stores, yeah, you may not have to pay the full price up front. Some store, you do. But at the same time, you do have the option to pay it in full and overall really, you need to pay it in full to begin with. If you don't have enough, then set aside a jar and throw money into it or just wait until it comes out. if you don't have enough by the time it comes out, then you should have needed to worry about pre-ordering it anyway because you obviously didn't have enough to even do the partial payment and then have enough to make the rest upon release. Also, there is not many pre-orders that give you content right away when you order them. Most you have to wait for that bonus content where here, you don't.

@rjejr Nintendo is a Japanese company. SSB is being released on the Wii U all around the same time and Winter in Japan is from 8 November – 4 February. It starts in November for Japan so it could be late november, early December when the game is released and considering how Over half of Brawl was sold in NA, It'll be out by Christmas.

The Skinny one looks so dumb with Bowser :P

I laughed at the they should add the glowing effect on the cars in real life however, there are a lot of places in, at least in Canada, where glowing effects are illegal on cars as they apparently distract other drivers.

ikki5 commented on Mario Kart 8 Update, Mercedes Karts and DLC Pr...:

@rjejr Well, if you pre-order it now, you will get to use the new Colour Skins for Yoshi and Shy Guy now. Plus, if your Wii U console dies, you send it to Nintendo and they either A) Fix it, or B) Send you another one with all the data transferred including your NNID so your DLC will yes, be on that console. Also, the fact that they are giving a month for it already instead of saying "Spring" or Summer" tells me it will probably be May and won't be delayed. Even more so that the game is already done and this is not them making a new game.

@Jazzer94 yes... I guess i didn't get my comment edited fast enough. lol But still, yeah there is a difference, it isn't as much as what people initially get at and the difference is probably still due to your government mostly as a lot of the extra could be due to the corporate taxes, import and such which again, are much higher than in the states. I highly doubt any of those companies are making much more profit if any than that of in NA.

@Jazzer94
crap, I see where I screwed up. I missed one step in my calculation which was factor the VAT back in to the total. lol, But yeah, it would be about a 2.3 pound difference. I am just going to delete that comment so i don't feel stupid. lol

ikki5 commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

I'm sold. Link... :D awesome, plus 8 new courses??? AWESOME!!!!

Though I am now wondering if we will ever have another Mario Kart game. It might be Nintendo Kart as it is no longer just Mario :P

@NapalmOmega

don't like the clones? Don't buy then, simple as that.

@IxC

then don't buy it. If you then won't buy the games on the console, then go to a new console... oh wait.... they do DLC too... you better just quit gaming all together.

ikki5 commented on Nintendo Has Nothing to Say About Recent Smash...:

@AdmiralThrawn So... you are going to be a douche to to people who want to keep things a surprise and special? Why is it so important that these videos stay out that you feel that you MUST upload them when Nintendo takes them down? Is this your goal in life? To make things less fun and enjoyable for people?

ikki5 commented on Nintendo Download: 21st August (North America):

@Krambo42
take a look at your list and compare it to EU though I am going to bring up July 24

July 24 - 2 NES megaman games and 1 GBA one
August 7 - Megaman Battle chip
August 14 - Megaman III (3DS)
August 21 - Megaman IV (3DS) and Double dragon. Then today you guys also got Fire Emblem.

Now, at the same time, you guys have been having VC promotions for the last month and a half where NA has seen absolutely nothing in that way. July 31st is the only time really you didn't get that great of a choice for the VC but I'd say 3 of them from the previous week and the massive list of promotions well makes up for that.

ikki5 commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Accepts Ice Bucket Challenge:

Reggie should be a Boss and take the challenge up a notch ( no pun intended) by doing it in a freezing environment. Then it would actually be a challenge. I used to do this or stuff like this all the time in hot summer days as a kid.
